How do I submit my dissertation as a Peer Reviewed publication?
I did not find my dissertation in your data base. I would love to have it submitted through the proper titles to be accessible for research and peer review. Please help me understand if I'm not searching correctly or if my school did not automatically submit it for me.
You can enter your dissertation manually into ResearchGate if you have a digital copy - but dissertations are not automatically recognised or registered by RG. RG mainly finds and recognises 'articles' through the conventional databases - such as recognised publishing houses - using systems such as digital object identifiers. It doesn't even recognise International Standard Book Numbers (ISBN) for books or book chapters. Again - one has to manually import those. Your school (University) stores your dissertation in either a local or national repository upon completion - but this does not transfer over to other systems - such as RG etc.
You can submit your dissertation to ResearchGate, using the Thesis option. You have to manually upload your dissertation as a pdf or Word document. It is very unlikely that ResearchGate will find your dissertation when you search for it, since it is not published in any journal. I uploaded my Master's dissertation, and it doesn't really matter whether you call it a thesis or a dissertation (at least not in my opinion). This does not, however, count as a peer-reviewed publication. You can get a unique DOI for it through ResearchGate, though, and you can also request feedback from others, effectively reviewing it.
If you want it peer-reviewed and published in a journal, you most likely have to rewrite your dissertation in order to accommodate an appropriate journal. Look for journals that might be interested in publishing whatever your dissertation is about, then alter it so that it conforms to their standards. Send it to them, and see what happens. If it gets published in a journal recognized by ResearchGate, they will typically detect the publication and shortly afterwards ask you if it is yours.
I doubt your school had any obligation to submit your dissertation anywhere, as this is not normal, in my experience. However, many universities have an online database where the public is able to access the dissertations of their students. Perhaps your school did this? If so, this is equivalent to putting it on ResearchGate, which makes it publicly available (but not a peer-reviewed publication).
To help gather more support for these initiatives, please consider sharing this post further (you don’t need a ResearchGate account to see it), and I will continue to update it with other initiatives as I find them. You can also click “Recommend” below to help others in your ResearchGate network see it.
